Stoke recovered from an awful start to run Spurs all the way to the final whistle in what ended as a narrow 3-2 victory for the Hosts. It was a positive response from the Potters who came away with no fresh injuries allowing them to now concentrate fully on the biggest game in the club’s recent history down at Wembley on Sunday.

Stoke put in their performance of the season as they drew with current Champions Chelsea putting a severe dent in any lingering hope the Blues still had a chance of the title. What makes it even more frustrating for both sides is that the Potters could well have won by a significant margin were it not for the heroics of Peter Cech who put in a herculean performance in-between the sticks.
